Mondays with Crosby



At 11:24 am, Crosby Fox turned 1 year and 25 weeks old!!! That makes a total of 77 weeks! Good night. That is a lot of weeks! Is it just us or does he look bigger and bigger each week? Maybe it is all of the hair coming in on top of that head. Not sure. But he sure seems to be turning into more of a toddler and less of a baby every day. My attempts to deny it are not working.

Of course we had to take a picture of Blake and Crosby on Father's Day! Crosby refused to look at the camera but I still thought it was cute... He was more interested in his new furry friend. More on her in a bit. This section is about his father... Crosby was able to participate a little more this year. We got a card for Blake, which Crosby "helped" sign. Then, I put the card in his hand and said, "Take your card to Daddy." Sure enough, he walked right up to Blake and presented him with a card! We had never practiced. He had never given anyone a card before. But that little brain of his sure knew what to do!! Amazing to think he understands 90% (or more) of what we say to him, according to books that is! We spent Father's Day together at church and had lunch together before Blake played golf with his dad. Mine was on the road, heading back from Mississippi. We are so grateful to have been blessed with amazing fathers and father's-in-law. And Crosby is crazy about his Daaah, Perd and Pop! Happy Father's Day!


It has been sooooo hotttah (as Crosby would say) lately. We can barely spend time outside during the middle of the day. Well, Crosby would. The only problem is I think I could have heat stroke and there would be no one else to watch him if it happened. So I figure we better not risk it. Instead, we pull out the sprinkler late in the afternoon...

Oh yea. We are classy folks for sure!

Crosby thought it was pretty awesome and that is all that matters...

So we missed the initial excitement. But at least we got his hysterical laugh on video...

All wet...

Oh, our poor nameless kitty. One would think she is so unloved... Except there is this little tike, who talks about her constantly...


And just waits for the opportunity to pour his love on her...

And pour he does...

And she is thrilled by it...

"Caatah" He says it all the time and points her way....
And he shrills every time we walks out the door. And when she jumps up into his chair. He just wants to kiss her over and over...

Nugget wanted to remind us that he still exists. As if we have forgotten!!! I managed to get all 3 of the kiddos in the frame!

More kisses...

Looks rather scary, I know. But fear not!!! This shot was just "mid meow"... See. No harm to the child!!!


When he is done with the caatah, there is always Daaah. Moments like these simply melt my heart. Books are Crosby's other love. I am pretty sure between me and Blake, this book was read 6 times within an hour. The boy LOVES to read...

And we love to snuggle up with the little guy and honor his request!

Note to self...no Zutano outfit next week!!! ;)
